On Artichoke Farm, this ultra-bohemian four-bedroom farmhouse is like a trip to the 1970s—in the best way. With heavy reclaimed wood sliding barn doors, classic white powder-coated cast-ron bed frames, and beamed wood ceilings, the farmhouse, only three miles from the coast, boasts miles of vast artichoke fields, which gleam in the bright orange-hued light during sunsets. Snag a front-row seat to the light show from the comfort of the open-air lounge.
Nestled within a posh farm colony called Osho Drive and neighboring the famous Isha Foundation, a spiritual hub for yoga and meditation, this whitewashed barn has mastered the balance between luxe and rustic. Plus, the calming horse stables and palm, Ashoka, frangipani, and ficus trees neatly scattered throughout the property don’t hurt. The house is equipped with a functional kitchen, but if you’re more in the mood to order in, spring for any of the freshly prepared dishes from the à la carte menu or opt for a chef-guided three-course outdoor candlelit dinner under a canopy of string lights.
In Upstate, New York, The Lodge at June Farms is as whimsically quaint as its name implies. Rustic in all the right ways, the one-bedroom lodge boasts an open floorplan that encompasses a full kitchen featuring a six-person island, and a living area outfitted with charcoal-hued velvet Restoration Hardware Chesterfield sofas and a vintage wooden rocking chair.
In the summer months, walk about 300 feet through the woods and down a slight hill to The Pony Barn, a rustic lounge serving the perfect pairing: local spirits and superb wood-fired pizza.
When we think “loft,” a farmhouse on 200 acres along the Hudson River in Germantown, New York, isn’t exactly what comes to mind. That said, this 2,000-square-foot two-bedroom former apple storage barn (with its original pine floors) is worth the two-hour trip from Manhattan. With a gas fireplace, cook’s kitchen, and a sprawling outdoor deck overlooking the grounds, which includes a calming pond, the farmhouse life is a serene one—especially on the terrace in front of the firepit with a glass of Merlot in hand.
A cherry red antique former milk barn in the heart of Bethel, Connecticut, a town rich with colonial-era history, is about as bucolic as it gets. Situated on lush four acres, on which the homeowners have added a heated pool and immaculately manicured gardens, the restored cottage resides in Connecticut’s Fairfield County countryside, where Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio filmed their visually stunning Revolutionary Road.
